Ninevah’s Story

Jonah’s story excited me this morning. Usually I look at the man Jonah, and the lessons he learned through his experience recorded in this book. But today I saw the city of Ninevah. It was a city full of sinful people. 120,000 idol worshipers living in spiritual darkness. But God had been working behind the scenes in the hearts and lives of the residents of Ninevah. They were ready to hear the Truth. As soon as Jonah preached God’s words, they repented. They repented! They realized their sin and called on God – and they were saved.

Many of us believe the US is too far gone, that destruction is inevitable, that this is the end. Is it? Or is God preparing hearts to break in the face of sin? Is he waiting for a Jonah (or Jonahs) to speak his words, then step back and watch God at work? Can there be a mass turning to the Savior in the US? There was in Ninevah.

May we pray believing. May we obey God’s call and not waste any time in the belly of a fish. May Satan be defeated in this land in such a miraculous way that all the nations will recognize God is who he says he is. May God pour his Spirit out on the people living in spiritual darkness right here in the United States of America. And may we turn to him like the people of Ninevah turned to God thousands of years ago.

Pray, dear one. Pray!

    Thank you for the insight. Sometimes I do think the US is too far gone. But there are strong Christians here. You’ve reviatalized this part of my prayer life.

      You know what? I’ve become bolder in my prayer for this country, too. I thank God for the many strong Christians here and believe it will be because of them, us, that this nation will be saved. Let’s continue to pray believing!
